  • Thanks for the votes

    To the editor:

    I wish to say thanks to all of the citizens of Cynthiana for electing me to the City Commission on Nov. 4. Believe me, it made me feel great. I will work hard and will represent each and every one of you. Thanks again.

  • Actions of young girls are good signs for the future

    To the editor:

    On Election Day I felt happy that I had voted. But my family had unpleasant health problems, so I decided to take a walk in the late afternoon sun on a back street.

    And then I found ‘my’ beautiful cat, who had been missing about two weeks, dead. I had last told him goodbye at daylight as I headed to Lexington.

    So with tears streaming down my face I slowly walked back to my home oblivious to two girls riding their quiet 4-wheeler.

  • Church, community join to help couple

    A concerned neighbor of an elderly couple bypassed her own needs and decided to step up to assist someone else in her community.

    The elderly couple was in desperate need of a new roof. Since they had limited funds and no means to pay for the job to be done, they were at the mercy of the weather.

    After several failed attempts to get the help her neighbors needed, she did not know where to turn next.

  • Troop 60 supports the efforts of the UCF

    To the editor:

    Boy Scout Troop 60 has been very pleased to receive United Community Funds. The troop has used this money to purchase tents and other camping equipment. It has also helped to provide uniforms for scouts, and fees for summer camp and other events when the parents have not been able to provide. Some of the money this year has been used to build a toilet at the camp by the county farm.

    The troop committee supports the United Community Fund and all the good work they are doing.

  • Disabled should get free spaying/neutering for pets

    To the editor:

    It’s been two weeks since my letter went to press regarding our local gas not dropping under $3 a gallon and guess what now its $2.75 here and $2.68 in Georgetown. However with gas going down, groceries are going up. Is there any end to this? It’s all politics and war time. But no one was in favor of war except G.W. Bush and he went after the wrong man and it cost us over 4,000 lives lost and still the culprit roams free.

  • White ribbons used for adoption recognition

    To the editor:
